February 12, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] Have you been missing the glow in the dark stuff? I have. Why can I never get around to painting them more?! Well today’s glow did not even require painting because I used Beauty BigBang’s glow in the dark heart sequins (J4196-1C) along with the last stamping plate Read More

Happy Chinese New Year! A holiday which I prefer over the western version with its dropping balls and celebrities bribed to entertain us instead of being with their families. I always feel bad about that even though I know they are making a lot of money. Aside from the cute Read More

Well, I guess I can say definitively now: unless everything is ready and all I have to do is hit “Post”, the blog and social media do not get touched when I’m visiting family. That’s probably for the best, but it’s a little hard when you’re trying not to keep Read More

Today I am bringing you some super purple grape nail art for #glamnailschallengesept.

Sometimes I forget that different challenges have different turnaround times for releasing the collage of participants. And since you’re not supposed to post your nail art until it’s done, well, this was a bad combination of challenges. I combined #TheInspirationChallenge with #26GreatNailArtIdeas (3D Embellished). This is probably the first and Read More

I think #NailArtChallenge’s Blue/Purple prompt is the perfect time to share this mani. This is not the first time that Born Pretty’s gorgeous Chameleon Cat’s Eye 24 appeared on this blog. In fact, what you are seeing right now is the same application of the polish. Hey, it’s a gel. Read More

Last month I was asked to host the next #nailswithigfriends. It was my first time hosting a collab and I think it went fairly well. I picked Time Period as the theme and I loved the huge variety of interpretations that all the ladies turned in, but I think next Read More

Kitties Make the Best Presents

December 25, 2017 Lisa 0

Kitties really do make the best presents. Unless we’re talking waking up Christmas morning to find out that your cat vomited on the carpet. Hard pass on vomit presents. I decided for the red/black prompt from #firedazedchallenge that I wanted to cover presents so I used some cute kitty images Read More
